  • Hanigan (ankle) set for rehab assignment
    Ryan Hanigan (ankle) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment this Saturday.

    Advice: And he could return to the Red Sox right after major league rosters expand on September 1. Hanigan has been out since August 6 with left ankle tendinitis. Sandy Leon will remain Boston's primary catcher. 25 minutes ago
    15-Day DL

  • Maybin out of Tigers' lineup on Thursday
    Cameron Maybin is out of the Tigers' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Twins.

    Advice: Tyler Collins will start in center field and bat second versus Minnesota right-hander Jose Berrios. This is just a routine day of maintenance for Maybin, who went 2-for-5 with an RBI on Wednesday and boasts a .326 batting average in 274 plate appearances this season. 27 minutes ago
  • Dodgers have 'rebuffed offers' on Yasiel Puig
    According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Dodgers have "rebuffed offers" for Yasiel Puig.

    Advice: Heyman says teams "appear to be bottom feeding for Puig" -- in other words, making lowball trade proposals -- and the Dodgers are not actually that desperate to give him away. The polarizing 25-year-old outfielder is batting .396/.448/.698 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 14 games since his demotion to Triple-A Oklahoma City on August 2. Josh Reddick, meanwhile, is slashing .143/.211/.157 in 20 games since the Dodgers acquired him via trade from the A's. Puig is under contract with Los Angeles through 2018, with about $25 million still due. 32 minutes ago

  • Andrew Benintendi (knee, ankle) out Thurs.
    Andrew Benintendi (knee, ankle) is out of the Red Sox lineup on Thursday afternoon.

    Advice: No surprise after he left Wednesday night's game with a serious-looking left leg injury. Benintendi is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Thursday to determine the full extent of the problem. Chris Young will start in left field and bat sixth Thursday versus Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi. Today, 7:22 am
    15-Day DL
    10:10 am @TB
  • Sandy Leon out of Red Sox lineup Thursday
    Sandy Leon is out of the Red Sox starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Rays.

    Advice: Bryan Holaday will start at catcher and bat ninth in the finale at Tropicana Field. It's just a routine day off for Leon, who's been one of the best stories of the second half. He's sitting on a ridiculous .369/.425/.618 season slash line in 176 plate appearances. Today, 7:16 am
  • Mike Minor (shoulder) shut down for season
    Mike Minor (shoulder) has officially been shut down for the year.

    Advice: Minor had another setback with his troublesome left shoulder in a rehab start Friday with Triple-A Omaha and Royals GM Dayton Moore confirmed Wednesday that the 28-year-old southpaw has simply run out of time. Minor hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2014, and he hasn't been effective since 2013. Kansas City owes him $4 million next year. Today, 6:26 am
    60-Day DL

  • Braves add Brandon Snyder from AAA level
    Braves purchased the contract of 3B/1B Brandon Snyder from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Snyder was designated for assignment by Atlanta just a few weeks ago, but he's getting called back to fill the roster spot left vacant by Wednesday night's Jeff Francoeur trade. Snyder, 29, owns a poor .232/.272/.420 career batting line in 107 games at the MLB level. Today, 6:17 am
  • Ender Inciarte goes 4-for-7
    Ender Inciarte went 4-for-7 with a double and two RBI against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Inciarte is hitting .355 in 152 at-bats since the All-Star break, which is really good. Still, fantasy leaguers need him to steal a few more bases. He's 3-for-5 during the second half and 11-for-16 in 96 games this season. With his speed, he should be a bigger weapon on the basepaths. Yesterday, 11:35 pm
  • Johnny Cueto loses 1-0 game
    Johnny Cueto took the loss in a 1-0 game Wednesday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Cueto pitched six innings and gave up a homer to Justin Turner in the fourth as the only damage. Cueto fell to 1-3 since the All-Star break after finishing the first half 13-1. He hasn't been that bad, though; he has a 3.91 ERA and a 43/10 K/BB ratio in his eight starts since the break. Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Boyd notches win in quality start vs Twins
    Matt Boyd struck out seven while yielding three runs in six innings to earn a win versus the Twins on Wednesday.

    Advice: It wasn't always pretty as he served up home runs to Robbie Grossman and Brian Dozier. Luckily they were both solo blasts that didn't do excessive harm. The win boosts his record to 5-2 with a 3.98 ERA after 13 starts and two relief appearances. His 64 to 24 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 74 2/3 innings at the age of 25 gives him some intrigue as a middle-of-the-rotation streamer with upside. Yesterday, 9:48 pm
  • Jacob deGrom gives up five runs in loss
    Jacob deGrom surrendered five runs and 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: DeGrom has followed up a couple of awesome months with a pair of ugly starts the last six days. He gave up three homers tonight after allowing a total of 12 in 22 starts coming in. It doesn't seem like his stuff has fallen off suddenly, so let's assume he'll bounce back next time out when he faces the Marlins. Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Randal Grichuk homers, doubles
    Batting seventh, Randal Grichuk homered, doubled and walked against the Mets on Wednesday.

    Advice: It certainly helps when Mike Matheny hits Grichuk somewhere other than eighth in front of the pitcher. It's just a terrible spot for someone with his ample power and subpar plate discipline. Hitting in front of an actual hitter will get him something to hit once in a while, as it did tonight. Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Dozier swats solo home run on Wednesday
    Brian Dozier connected for his 30th home run of the season in the Twins' loss to the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He added a single and finished 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored. Dozier has generated a sudden burst of power lately with 13 home runs in his last 23 games. This is the first 30-homer season in Dozier's career. He has a .270 batting average this year after being a burden in that fantasy category in all prior seasons. He contributes nicely across the board with 79 runs scored, 76 RBI and 10 stolen bases. Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Miley holds Nats to two runs in five frames
    Wade Miley earned a win against the Nationals by holding them to two runs over five innings on Wednesday.

    Advice: He gave up seven hits, including a solo homer by Danny Espinosa. His six strikeouts helped quell some threats. It was a short outing but the Orioles will take it. Miley has not been good this year. Tonight's pleasant outing improves his record to 8-10 with an unsightly 5.51 ERA. His owners must soon decide if they are brave enough (or desperate enough) to use him in a two-start week against the Blue Jays and Yankees beginning on Monday. Yesterday, 9:07 pm
  • Mets bring southpaw Gilmartin up to majors
    Mets recalled LHP Sean Gilmartin from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Gilmartin held a 2.67 ERA in 57 1/3 innings last season, but he has yet to find that kind of success in 2016. The 26-year-old southpaw has made five appearances with the Mets this season and has allowed seven runs on 11 hits in nine innings. There is no fantasy intrigue here. Yesterday, 9:05 pm

  • Benintendi to undergo MRI on left leg Thurs.
    Andrew Benintendi will undergo an MRI on his left leg Thursday.

    Advice: Benintendi suffered a left knee sprain and some kind of ankle injury during the seventh inning of Wednesday's game against the Rays while trying to evade a tag at second base. The 22-year-old outfielder's MRI should shed more light on just how badly he was hurt, but he put little weight on his leg when exiting the clubhouse after the game. This could be a very bad diagnosis. Yesterday, 8:24 pm
    15-Day DL
    10:10 am @TB
  • Benintendi diagnosed with a left knee sprain
    Andrew Benintendi left Wednesday's game against the Rays with a left knee sprain.

    Advice: Benintendi suffered the injury while attempting to get back to second base to avoid a tag in the seventh inning. He rolled over his left ankle, spraining his knee in the process, and needed to be helped off the field by the training staff. The Red Sox will reevaluate the young outfielder on Thursday, but this could easily end in a trip to the 15-day disabled list and perhaps something much worse. Yesterday, 7:03 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Benintendi helped off field with a leg injury
    Andrew Benintendi suffered an apparent ankle or leg injury in the seventh inning of Wednesday's game against the Rays.

    Advice: This one looked bad. Benintendi was on second base and tried to move back toward the bag to avoid a tag, but his left ankle rolled almost completely under him. He was noticeably hobbled and needed assistance from trainers to exit the field of play. In the moment, the injury certainly seems like it could cost Benintendi multi-game action, but the Red Sox should provide more clarity within the next few hours. Yesterday, 6:29 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Dozier homers, scores twice against Tigers
    Brian Dozier went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in a loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Dozier hit a solo jack in the fifth inning, his 10th homer this month and 29th of the season. That's seventh-best in the American League, and it's now a single-season high for the 29-year-old. It's shaping up to be a career year on a few different fronts for Dozier, who is batting .268/.341/.536 with 75 RBI, 77 runs scored and 10 steals this year. Tuesday, 8:58 pm
  • Maybin has stolen base, three RBI vs. Twins
    Cameron Maybin collected three RBI and stole a base in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Maybin drew a bases-loaded walk in the second inning, and a two-run single in the sixth inning gave the Tigers a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The stolen base was Maybin's first in two games since returning from a sprained thumb, and he's now got five RBI in those two games. Now that he's proven his health, the 29-year-old should move up in the Tigers' lineup after batting ninth Tuesday. Maybin is hitting .325/.397/.397 with 14 stolen bases on the year. Tuesday, 8:50 pm
  • Benintendi hits first career homer in loss
    Andrew Benintendi connected for his first career major league home run in Sunday's 10-5 loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Entering Sunday's action, Benintendi had hit five doubles among his first 17 knocks (55 at-bats), but his first homer remained more elusive than the Loch Ness Monster. No longer. Against the Tigers, the 22-year-old outfielder absolutely demolished a Shane Greene offering for a no-doubt two-run homer to right in the seventh. In addition to his first homer, he also picked up his first career triple on his way to finishing 2-for-4. Since being called up on August 2, Benintendi is hitting a very respectable .322/.375/.492. Those numbers figure to work themselves out with more at-bats, but it has been a nice start nonetheless. Sunday, 2:08 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Mike Minor (shoulder) suffers setback
    Mike Minor left a rehab start on Friday with stiffness in his surgically-repaired left shoulder.

    Advice: It's unclear at this point how serious the setback is, but Royals general manager Dayton Moore said in a radio interview on 610 Sports Radio that it effectively rules Minor out as an option for the major league club in September. "We're not too optimistic that he's going to be in a position to help us this year based on some news we got after the game last night," Moore said. Minor hasn't pitched in the majors since 2014 due to shoulder problems. Sunday, 11:19 am
    60-Day DL

  • Cameron Maybin activated from disabled list
    Tigers activated OF Cameron Maybin from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Maybin faced Jordan Zimmermann (lat) in a simulated game Sunday and apparently looked good enough to force his way back onto the roster. He's in center field and batting second against Henry Owens and the Red Sox on Sunday. Sunday, 8:49 am
  • Ryan Hanigan (ankle) nearing rehab assignment
    Ryan Hanigan (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment soon.

    Advice: Hanigan has missed the last two weeks of action with tendinitis in his left ankle. He'll rejoin the Red Sox when rosters expand but is likely headed for a diminished role with Sandy Leon playing so well. Sunday, 6:32 am
    15-Day DL
    10:10 am @TB
  • Cameron Maybin (thumb) to take BP on Saturday
    Cameron Maybin (thumb) will take batting practice on Saturday.

    Advice: It's another step forward for Maybin, who has spent most of the month battling a sprained thumb. If Maybin's BP session goes well, he could start a rehab assignment in the near future. Andrew Romine and Tyler Collins have been sharing center-field duties during his absence. Saturday, 1:55 pm
  • Cueto limits Mets to one run in seven in win
    Johnny Cueto fired seven innings of one-run ball in an 8-1 win over the Mets on Friday.

    Advice: Cueto came into Friday’s game with a 5.55 over his last four starts, so this was nice to see. Of course, it helped that he was facing the scuffling Mets. He struck out only two batters, but didn’t walk anyone and the only mistake was a long solo homer to Curtis Granderson in the second inning. Cueto will try to build off this one when he faces the Dodgers in a critical NL West showdown next week in Los Angeles. Friday, 10:28 pm
  • Grichuk helps Cardinals win in extras
    Randal Grichuk slugged a solo homer and later hit a go-ahead RBI double in the 11th inning as the Cardinals topped the Phillies 4-3 on Friday.

    Advice: Grichuk went 3-for-5 on the night as his hot hitting continues. He’s now batting .385 (10-for-26) with three homers, five doubles, one triple, and nine RBI in seven games since returning from the minors. Strikeouts are an issue for him, so the batting average won’t last, but his power makes him an intriguing pickup in mixed fantasy leagues. Friday, 9:28 pm
  • Inciarte homers, plates three in loss to Nats
    Ender Inciarte went 2-for-5 with a homer and three RBI on Friday as the Braves fell to the Nationals.

    Advice: Inciarte got the Braves on the board with a two-run shot in the sixth inning, then plated another run with a fielder's choice in the eighth inning. The speedy leadoff hitter is now hitting .268/.324/.348 with three homers, 20 RBI and 11 stolen bases on the season. Friday, 8:31 pm
  • Wade Miley hit hard in no-decision on Friday
    Wade Miley was hit hard in a no-decision against the Astros on Friday, allowing six runs on six hits in only 1 2/3 innings.

    Advice: On the plus side, all five of the outs that he did record came via strikeouts and he didn't walk a batter. George Springer tagged him for a solo homer to lead off the game, then the Astros tacked on five runs before chasing the veteran southpaw in the second inning. He'll try to turn things around and improve upon a troublesome 5.58 ERA and 1.43 WHIP when he takes on the Nationals in Washington on Wednesday. Friday, 7:53 pm
  • Cameron Maybin (thumb) hits off tee
    Cameron Maybin (thumb) took 30 swings off a tee on Thursday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's swung a bat since going on the disabled list with a Grade 2 left thumb sprain. He'll do some more hitting on Friday. It's looking like Maybin might have a shot to return before the end of the month if he keeps progressing. Friday, 1:09 pm
  • Giants rock deGrom for eight runs in 5 IP
    Jacob deGrom was shelled in Thursday's 10-7 loss to the Giants, surrendering eight runs on 13 hits over five innings.

    Advice: After tossing three scoreless frames, deGrom ran into trouble and then some. He coughed up five runs in the fourth inning and another three in the fifth before his evening was mercifully ended. The start bumped his ERA from 2.30 to a still-respectable 2.73 mark. DeGrom also holds a 1.11 WHIP and 134/30 K/BB ratio across 22 starts. Thursday's result wasn't particularly appealing, but sometimes you just don't have it. He will try to rebound in a road date with the Cardinals next time he toes the rubber. Thursday, 10:51 pm
  • Dozier launches 27th homer against Royals
    Brian Dozier hit his 27th home run of the year in Thursday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Dozier greeted Royals starter Dillon Gee rudely, homering to lead off the game. Little did Dozier and company know it would be the only run they would get against Gee and the Royals bullpen on the evening. Dozier is riding a nine-game hitting streak during which he's homered five times with 10 RBI and nine runs scored. His speed has disappeared -- Dozier's eight steals would be the lowest of his career -- but everything else is working for the 29-year-old, who's hitting .267/.341/.531 with 73 RBI and 73 runs scored overall. Thursday, 9:45 pm
  • Matt Boyd holds Red Sox to one run
    Matt Boyd held the Red Sox to one run in six innings Thursday in a no-decision.

    Advice: Boyd took advantage of facing a tired lineup missing both David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia and avenged one of the worst outings of all-time; last July, in his only previous start against Boston, he gave up seven runs without retiring a batter. Boyd has a nice 2.06 ERA in seven starts and a relief appearance since the beginning of July. We don't think he'll keep it up, but he's been a big help to the Tigers of late. Thursday, 1:50 pm
  • Sandy Leon hits seventh homer
    Sandy Leon homered and drew a nine-pitch walk Thursday against the Tigers.

    Advice: The Red Sox have debated for two years whether Blake Swihart or Christian Vazquez would be their long-term catcher, but at this point, it's become realistic to think that Leon will be the starter on Opening Day next year. He's always been a fine defender, so it's not like he needs to keep hitting .382 to be a quality starter. Which is good, since he surely won't. Thursday, 1:43 pm
  • Puig hitting .481 with 3 HR in 7 games at AAA
    Yasiel Puig is batting .481/.548/.926 in seven games since his demotion to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: He has slugged three home runs and struck out just once in 31 plate appearances. Puig ran into some trouble last week for a set of vulgar Snapchat videos, but he's been a beast on the field for OKC and could force the Dodgers' hand toward a recall if the hot-hitting continues. Josh Reddick has largely been a disappointment since the Dodgers acquired him from the Athletics at the August 1 trade deadline, though it's a fairly small sample size right now. Los Angeles moved into sole possession of first place in the National League West on Tuesday night. Wednesday, 8:49 am

  • Maybin (thumb) shagged fly balls this weekend
    Cameron Maybin (thumb) shagged fly balls over the weekend without issue.

    Advice: "He said he’s been feeling better the last couple of days," manager Brad Ausmus said Sunday. "Which is a good sign. It didn’t bother him to close the glove at all." Maybin should soon resume swinging a bat and could be ready to return from the disabled list next week. He's been out since August 9, retroactive to August 4, with a Grade 2 left thumb sprain. Monday, 8:50 am
